Expanded Regional Airport
                   Four Proposed Scenarios
Alternative Plan #1

Alternative Plan #1This concept proposes the expansion of the Orlando Apopka Airport to
handle increased aviation needs. A new 6,000 foot runway with a north south orientation is
proposed adjacent to the existing runway as part of phase one. The plan shows a
proposed Aviation Museum, businesses supporting aviation, and parking (park and ride)
for the future commuter rail station.

In phase two, a commercial center is proposed within a short walk of the rail station. This
area and the adjacent office/ professional development may also be conveniently
accessed by a proposed frontage road. These developments are strategically located
between the commuter rail station and a trade/business incubator in order to support both
key features.

The trade/business incubator would complement a trade school in this area. Multifamily
developments on both sides of Jones Avenue would provide housing for students as well
as employees of adjacent businesses. The industrial and warehouse/ distribution
developments around the existing Orlando North Airpark would be serviced by Jones
Avenue as well as multiple proposed rail spurs off the existing freight line.
Alternative Plan #2

This concept also proposes the expansion of the Orlando Apopka Airport to handle increased
aviation needs. A new 6,000 foot runway is proposed perpendicular to the existing runway.

Alternative Plan #3

Alternative Plan #3The land uses and features of this concept are the same as the plan 2
with one main exception: the proposed runway at the Orlando Apopka Airport is north of the
existing runway to take advantage of the more level topography in that area. The proposed
east-west orientation maximizes the windbased landing possibilities.

Alternative Plan #4

This concept explores the possibility of expanding the Orlando North Airpark. The runway at
the Orlando North Airpark would be paved and lengthened to 6,000 feet. A second runway,
perpendicular to the improved runway, would maximize the wind-based landing possibilities.
The proposed extension of Ponkan Road will create a truck route to this improved airport as
well as a connection to the existing Orlando Apopka Airport. This proposed truck route will
relieve additional truck traffic on US 441. An internal frontage road is proposed to connect the
future commuter rail station, the trade/business school campus, and the light industrial
development proposed north of the Orlando Apopka Airport.
